Join our team of volunteer Bookstore Sales Associates!

Our bookstore serves many purposes for the community and with that, our volunteers enjoy a wide variety of responsibilities. Bookstore Sales Associates price and shelve books, run the register, take donations, maintain sections and displays, and help customers.

Bookstore Volunteers are frequently asked to support us at exciting special events held at the Bookstore, such as concerts, book launches, and trivia events.
